The Africa-American rapper has arrived in Ghana to mark 400 years since the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Virginia. As part of the “The year of return” which was initiated to bring all interested Africans in the diaspora to Ghana, especially those living in the United States to know their roots, all visitors are made to visit the Cape Coast Castle where the African slaves were traded for many years.
Upon visiting the facility, the rapper took to his social media platforms to make the following comment:
“Our ancestors never gave up Faith. You can never imprison our minds nor our spirits. They empowered me to Return. I have completed the cycle and I’m beginning a new Cycle. The Chains have been Broken and the indomitable resilience of African People Triumphs”
It is very obvious he does not only share in the sorrows after listening to accounts of the grievous sufferings of his ancestors but he is equally happy to have at least set foot on the land where he originated.
Aside Ludacris, the well known American rapper Rick-Rocks is also in Ghana to climax the event.
